Known issues: On some mobile web browsers, Filemaker often fails to recognize text in search fields unless it includes an asterisk as the last character. Thus Protea will fail while Protea* succeeds. This can lead to confusing results, especially when text fields are combined with check boxes. This behavior might be limited to Android platforms; further testing is needed.

The app is currently optimized for portrait orientation on a smartphone.

Note: The database is not ready for public consumption and may contain inaccurate or incomplete entries.
